"This cottage is the best, a five-star home rental and a real home-away-from-home! My husband and I, our two adult daughters, our son-in-law, and my two grand pugs stayed here for one week and all agreed owner Paige has gone well above the average home renter to ensure her guests’ comfort.
The Cottage is within walking distance of Vanderbilt Beach (0.7 mile). We all walked it or used the bicycles several times and the beautiful neighborhood made it a very enjoyable outing. There’s so many markets and great shopping places nearby, you can easily stay busy with just that. (Naples is a fantastic second-hand store area due to the very wealthy population; Audrey’s at 10th Ave and other stores in that block carry designer clothes that are so cheap and look like they’ve never been worn). The Naples Botanical Gardens is within 10 miles and is gorgeous, the zoo and museums are also nearby.
We have a couple of good cooks in our family so we like to eat in some. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything we needed to make three-course dinners and mixed drinks; the dining table comfortably seats six (Paige had fresh tulips on the table, such a nice touch). But if you like to eat out, and we did several times, there are hundreds of great restaurants within a few miles.
The bedrooms are spacious and had plenty of storage for our week’s necessities. The bathrooms are modern and spacious too. The living room and kitchen are much bigger than the photos capture, and the whole house is bright and filled with sunshine. All furniture and furnishings are like new, beautiful and comfortable, and the decorations are very upscale and personal.
All appliances are like new and everything in the house is exceptionally clean and well-cared for. We did not need anything additional in our week stay, everything worked perfectly, we had plenty of towels, toilet paper, and Paige even has detergent and dishwasher supplies if you need them.
The photos of the courtyard and the backyard w/heated swimming pool do not do this yard justice. The front yard courtyard is so adorable, you’ll enjoy walking around and discovering little gems tucked away in the trees and fences. The back yard area has a 6 ft privacy fence and also has the entire deck area screened in.
Our family thinks the cottage is the high bar to which all other home rentals should aspire. Thank you Paige for your efforts, they are greatly appreciated by our family."
